Where to sell used goods locally?

I would like to get rid of some decent electronics that are used but probably still have some value. (55" TV, laptops, etc).

Anyone know of a good place around Pilsen / Bridgeport that buys and resales used goods? (aside from Craigslist, etc)

With Nightmare Logic, Power Trip’s crossover thrash unites doomed masses in celebration

Fri 11/24, 8:30 PM, Thalia Hall, 1807 S. Allport, $30, $25 in advance, 17+

    With Nightmare Logic, Power Trip's crossover thrash unites doomed masses in celebration
    Power Trip have long produced crossover thrash for the tattered, sleeveless Cro-Mags T-shirt wearer in all of us-and with their recent sophomore album, the Dallas dudes prove it. Since its release in February, Nightmare Logic (Southern Lord) has been universally regarded as a triumph of dystopic metal, a record that has brought together all adrenaline junkies who require a little grime and sweat in their riffs.

Lights Out

Most of the street lights on Paulina St. between 18th St. and Cermak Rd. are out. Anyone know why?
The area around Cooper School is especially dark. I've seen groups of young girls and elderly women walking cautiously in the area, while groups of young men linger about.
There is some construction going on with the roads (sewers) but it can't be impossible to have some temporary lights for safety.

    If anything breaks in the City, a 3-1-1 request will be routed directly to the City agency responsible for fixing the problem. You can even request text messages for updates. Just about every agency is responsive. (... except for Streets & Sanitation - good luck with them, if you ever need them...) Fortunately, there is a separate agency for street lighting.

THANK Karen Yarbrough for some long needed innovation in Cook County. Went to a seminar last night at Lawndale Community Church.

An excellent speaker Mario spoke on topics important to all of us. He had great slides and a good sense of humor. Everyone was mesmerized.

There are FORMS that will convey property of a deceased for property, FORMS to transfer auto. FORMS to transfer ownership of car. FORMS transfer Bank Account. FORMS to get out of inheritance (property with liens and problems inherited.

Sign up and be notified if there is activity that would affect title to your building.

Innovations by Karen will protect many in the community from being swindled out of their property. So many south and west side properties are demolished because of inability to have clear title.

These transfer forms are FREE and require typical recording fees but NO Lawyer.
Follow the legal process (steps). It is easy.

Call and request a speaker come to your organization., It is free.

go to the website. click http://cookrecorder.com, click videos, click mayor video. see the presentation online.

Many things can be done online.

Brooklyn pizza mecca Roberta's hosting Pilsen pop-up

Roberta’s at Dusek’s, 1227 W. 18th St., 312-526-3851

    Brooklyn pizza mecca Roberta's hosting Pilsen pop-up
    Gather round, friends, and let me tell you about the siren song of Roberta's pizza. As a former Brooklyn dweller, I'll have the occasional sense memory of the Bushwick pizzeria's highly craveable, wood-fired crust mimicking impossibly chewy-and-crispy Neopolitan crusts, with topping combinations that speak to New York bravado: radicchio, pancetta, scallion and jalapeno; or onions, capers, pork sausage, mozzarella, and jalapeno; or spicy soppressata and honey.

    Anti-Gentrifiers Say New Pilsen Restaurant Puts 'Our Lives ... In Danger'
    PILSEN - Activists demonstrating how gentrification has changed Pilsen clashed with the management of a soon-to-open, high-end eatery on 18th Street in a confrontation that led the restaurant to call police. The confrontation unfolded early last week as members of ChiResists and other anti-gentrification groups joined with the Los Angeles-based Defend Boyle Heights in a tour of the neighborhood that was recorded on Facebook Live.
